Default VKool/Garware/LLumar?

Hey guys..I have ordered for a new Black City,and well,will need a pretty good sun control film for it,so,wanted to know which one is best -
1. LLumar
2. V Kool
3. Garware
4. Any others??..

I am planning to go in for 5 sides + Front Transparent.
Are there any colour/reflection/magnification/etc. problems with the Front transparent window tints?..?
I would like to know how much the tints will cost me ?..?..also,which one is best in terms of Heat Rejection/Fastest AC cooling effect?..?

Thanks,
Suraj

LLumar is quite a reputed brand. Perform well and last long too.

Hey Suraj,

You should go in for a nice brand like Lumar or Solar Guard. Lumar costs 1800 upwards and solar guard 3500 upwards. They are both available at Bhavi in Milan Subway who is the distributor for Mumbai.

Vkool is also good but very expensive. DO NOT GO FOR GARWARE IT IS CRAP.

Also avoid the front windscreen. You will have problems after a couple of months like clouding, hazy vision at night. Have tried VKool front screen Removed it after 6 months. FIT AT OWN RISK.

Try to use a lighter film for the rear glass to have a clearer view while reversing or fix "reversing sensors" on ur bumpers. its a must ...since not much is visible while reversing at dark.

Well,so,I guess Garware is out of question..Now,what remains is V Kool and LLumar.. so, which one among these is better?
I am getting very diverse views on the front transparent films !
Few say it doesn't work after a few months,and interferes with front sight..and few say it's makes hell a lot of a difference ..and almost 50% of heat rejection is through that front film,if installed..!..
So,I'm totally confused on the front screen film..!..
Well,will just wait and watch for more feedback on it !
